terence trent d'arby - seasons (someday, someone will cover this forgotten gem and make bank)

Just a drop-dead beautiful song and performance, everything on it performed and produced by him ... a stunner, IMHO.

I won't say goodbye
I don't want to use that exit line
Please don't make me lie
I have no excuse for you this time

Cause sometimes
(It's alright for a season)
But then it's time to go

The verses of my life are moving past
And so now the chorus I must hear
I've got to define my life and times
Before I can give you more than tears

Cause sometimes
(It's alright for a season)
But then it's time to go

Your heart was stretched to the point of breaking
Your tears are etched and your sorrow is waking

This complicated curse
Causes you to freeze our love in time
If I awaken first
It's only 'cause you lost yourself in mine

Please don't let me see you cry

Cause sometimes
It's alright for a season
But then it's time to go ...

If You Tolerate This ... Then Your Children Will Be Next ...

The Manics live on Jools Holland ... kickass ...

Pure, Short, Simple Beauty - Better Be Home Soon - Crowded House

Easily one of my all time favorite tunes ...

I know ... I Could Never Let You Down ... When You Come ...

Particularly phenomenal drum (and bass for that matter) work on this Crowded House classic ...

If The Music Ain't Good Well It's Just Too Bad We're Gonna Sing Along No Matter What!

Scissor Sisters - Take Your Mama Out - Glastonbury - 2010


anderson east - king for a day (studio - 2018)

Dude's got a pretty kickass voice, and excellent band ... a damn groovy, soulful tune, even if it sounds like a LOT of older songs by other artists ... IOW, it's about as 'instantly familiar' as it gets ...

FFS, Mueller did NOT 'RECOMMEND NO JAIL TIME' for Flynn ... why is everyone, everywhere saying this?

He recommended a penalty towards the lower end of sentencing guidelines which COULD INCLUDE 'no jail time'.

He absolutely DID NOT explicitly 'Recommend No Jail Time'.

Looking at how ALL the reporting is casting this ... is pissing me off at this point.

It's not that hard to report it correctly.

john mayer - slow dancing in a burning room (live - 2007 - los angeles) jaw-dropping perfection ...

I'm totally prepared to forgive the occasional bit of mild douche-baggery in a musician ... when they're this good at writing, singing, and playing ... not to mention, the lyrics definitely hit me in the feels ...

Bonus track, from the same show ... also sheer perfection ... I esp. love the above-the-nut string bends at around the 5:00 mark. Dude is a straight badass ...

John Mayer - Walt Grace's Submarine Test, January 1967 (don't care what u say, this is a great song)

There's just something about it ... that really hits home for me ... I LIKE a lot of Mayer's songs, especially those on Continuum and this album (Born and Raised), but this is the one song of his that I legitimately love ... think it's the best song he ever did.

Probably NOBODY here has heard it ... give it a shot ...

Lucius - Two of Us On The Run - These two ladies are freaking magical ...

From their 2014 debut "Wildewoman", pretty much every song on it is good-to-great, but this is a particular fave. Love the part starting at 3:05 ... so, so good.

I also love the various differently-sung refrains of:

"one day tell our story of how we made something of ourselves ..."
